Michael Jackson's Mother Seeks Information on Estate
Lawyers for Katherine Jackson on Tuesday asked for the authority to subpoena attorney John Branca and former music executive John McClain, the two men who were named in Jackson's will as executors of his estate, the Associated Press reports.
They want to interview them and search their records.
Los Angeles Superior Court Judge Mitchell Beckloff will not respond to their request until Monday. On that day, he plans to consider a wide range of matters, which include whether the special administrators will continue their roles and whether an allowance will be granted to Katherine and Jackson's three children, Prince, 12, Paris, 11, and Blanket, 7.
Tuesday's filing was meant to expedite the process of obtaining "important personal, business and legal information and documents relating to Michael Jackson" including his deal with concert promoter AEG, according to a written statement from L. Londell McMillan, who is part of Katherine Jackson's legal team.
They're also seeking "life insurance policies, settlements and disputes as well as agreements between the temporary special administrators and Michael Jackson."
McMillan said they'd requested some of the documents before and had hoped to see them before the Aug. 3 hearing.
